5. I'm not on those sites even bringing up politics. People have anti Obama avatars. I don't even talk
politics there. People just make their views known.

6. I don't care what the fuck they do. You asked our opinion and I answered.
Start your own site.

Or not.

4. Print out their home pages...
...take them along next time you go to the range, tack 'em on your target, and get some practice.

7. TheLiberalGunClub.com.
Also, DU has it's own Guns forum.

Last but not least, for a larger forum, there's TheFiringLine.com. They have a pretty strict rule against partisan political discussions. There's some right-wing nonsense, but it's kept well in check.

15. I used to do firingline quite a bit
there are some fairly vocal liberals there..this was when tfl still had a fairly open political forum, now I think it is pretty non-political.

20. Yeah, they ended up shuttering the political forum--now there's no partisan discussions.
There can still be discussions of, say, how government rules work, or the odds of a given bill passing. And you still get a solid feel for where some of the people stand. But it's not allowed to go to terms of "gun grabbing Democrats" or anything like that. Most of the posters there actually tend to have more of a genuine libertarian base, although there's some right wing morons as well. And, as you say, a few people who are obviously liberals/Democrats.

8. Just hold your tongue and avoid discussing politics with them.
Welcome to DU. I'm sure you'll find it a more welcoming place for your views.

10. These people simply have not figured out that we have guns too.
Gonna be a big surprise when they start dragging their fat, pasty, white asses up my street with their rusty old shotguns.

12. Some forum are divided into two sections: tech forums and everything else

I stick to the tech forums.

Also specialized forums tend to be less political.

13. Some people think you can't be liberal..
Edited on Fri Apr-22-11 09:27 PM by sendero
.. and pro gun rights. They are stupid.

I like using the name "armedLiberal" or somesuch, it really throws idiots for a loop.

I'd be considered a screaming socialist by most of these idiots but I have more guns and ammo than the average 3 of them combined.
